As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmutallahi Wa Baraakaatahu,

It’s your Sunnah Infographics Family here!

We hope you are in the best of health and emaan..

This week, we will be sharing glad tidings from a statement of our Prophet ﷺ.

It’s always important to remember that not everything we see, is a bad occurrence. 

Part of building our emaan is to know and believe in the unseen. 

(The things that we don’t see)

This causes us to strengthen our faith in Allah and causes our emaan to grow like a seed that blossoms into a beautiful flower.

So, let's dig a little deeper to learn more...

Ayat Al Qur’an - Surah Al Baqarah (The Cow) - (2:154-155)

وَلَا تَقُولُوا۟ لِمَن يُقْتَلُ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ أَمْوَٰتٌۢ بَلْ أَحْيَآءٌ وَلَٰكِن لَّا تَشْعُرُونَ

And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.

وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُم بِشَىْءٍ مِّنَ ٱلْخَوْفِ وَٱلْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِّنَ ٱلْأَمْوَٰلِ وَٱلْأَنفُسِ وَٱلثَّمَرَٰتِ وَبَشِّرِ ٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ

And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient.

1 Hadith

Jabir ibn ‘Atik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There are seven martyrs besides one who is killed in the way of Allah: the victim of plague is a martyr, the one who drowns is a martyr, the one who dies of chest pain is a martyr, the one who dies of stomach infection is a martyr, the one who burns to death is a martyr, the one who dies under rubble is a martyr, and the pregnant woman who dies in labor is a martyr.”

عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَتِيكٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الشَّهَادَةُ سَبْعٌ سِوَى الْقَتْلِ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ الْمَطْعُونُ شَهِيدٌ وَالْغَرِقُ شَهِيدٌ وَصَاحِبُ ذَاتِ الْجَنْبِ شَهِيدٌ وَالْمَبْطُونُ شَهِيدٌ وَصَاحِبُ الْحَرِيقِ شَهِيدٌ وَالَّذِي يَمُوتُ تَحْتَ الْهَدْمِ شَهِيدٌ وَالْمَرْأَةُ تَمُوتُ بِجُمْعٍ شَهِيدٌ

Reflection Point

In this life..

Not everything is as it seems.

Just because we don’t see something with the naked eye, that doesn't mean that we don't believe in it or believe that it didn't take place.

Let me ask you a question.

Do you remember when you were in the womb of your mothers stomach?

No.

But you were most certainly there, before you entered this world.

The same goes for this life and our beliefs as a Muslim..

We may not see things, but believe it took place.

The same goes for those who pass away in the ways mentioned in the hadith.

It can be hard to understand at times or to even grasp, especially when we look around at this world we live in.

But we still believe Insha Allah.

This week, ponder over those who have passed away in any of the seven ways mentioned in the hadith.

It may be someone from your family, members of your community, our brothers and sisters who are suffering around the world at this time and of course the blessed companions of the Prophet ﷺ.

Let it strengthen your emaan to know that they are from the shuhaada (Martyrs) insha Allah.

This week, we have designed an informative and well-designed infographic to educate and highlight to our community, the 7 ways the Prophet ﷺ mentioned a person passes away and dies as a Martyr.

Remember...

"Whoever guides someone to goodness will have a reward like one who did it."
